Not my cup indeed but the background information makes it fit and probably helps people understand why its here. It's older than I am!

Historic (Built ca 1913 during the upgrading of the road from rural dirt road to the Red Ball Route highway.) + Notable (Example of one of the ISHC's early standardized designs; One of two remaining original structures along the IC→NL segment.) = meets Jame's own criteria.

I get that concrete culverts aren't everyone's cup of tea, but c'mon.

Now. Now. Luke worked really hard to find this one, painfully distinguishing from all the other pipes in the area.

You know, you can dislike a bridge without shitposting every 3 days about it.

I have surveyed some of these in the past... And there STILL isn't anything exciting about them!

Maybe James could conger up another sister site... "CULVERTHUNTER.com"

Lower maintenance and more durable than a truss. I should have stuck with these... :^)

This is a joke, right? I mean, it's just a pipe!
